Loved Katamah on the Beach. Huge communal kitchen and sitting area. Lovely dining and sitting area in a thatche'd Gazebo. Rooms funky Moroccan and lovely. Moni, Andrew and Simon all great. Going back in September.

There are two questions you will ask yourself when leaving Katamah: Why am I leaving? and Can I pay Mony, Andrew, and Simon more for my stay?. Calling this place a hotel completely misses the point. There are delightfully decorated rooms that scream Jamaican chill with a hint of Morocco. The grounds are fascinating. The common areas including a great... More

Katamah sucked me in as soon as I walked in. Okay, so first I saw the well spaced and homey looking cottages with lots of trees and flowers all around. Then I took in the HUGE thatch-roofed verandah with li-los and chairs scattered around. Then the communal room and kitchen with touches of Asia and Middle East here and there... More

Absolutely wonderful place. Treasure beach is simply a pearl. The place is right on the beach and super close to a couple of bars / restaurant. Also walking distance to other restaurants off the beach. The hotel is super cozy with the sweetest personnel. Would recommend highly to stay here. Extremely nice vibe. Will come back for sure!!

Very relaxing place with helpful, friendly and sweet staff. We met some travellers on the road that recommended this place, so we called Andrew. The rooms were not available, but they arranged a tent for us to sleep in (best sleep we ever had in Jamaica). And they put up a wall around the tent so we could have some... More

Very welcoming and relaxing place with helpful and friendly staff. Nice location right on the beach with with a reef where you can snorkel. Nice garden. Bikes available. Don't like the big resorts? Go to Treasure beach and stay at this wonderful low key place. Great seafood at nearby restaurants.

I stayed at Katamah for 7 days and 6 nights. A few days before my stay Andrew called ahead to see if I needed transportation assistance. That was much appreciated. I was amazing and just what I needed. Loved the decor of the place where Morocco meets Jamaica and the vibe of the place is quite chill. The staff were... More

If you want space, seclusion, tranquility, sea - look no further. At Katamah you get all that and more! From Sally the parrot to vibrant hummingbirds, snowy egrets and herons (plus circling eagles!) toads in the pond, gorgeous flora, it's a fab location on the water's edge. The vibe is special-attention to detail, laid back, easy going, looked after by... More

The ultimate romantic getaway! Location was perfect and the ocean sounds were rhythmic! The outdoor bathrooms were just lovely, local restaurants had an amazing atmosphere and the staff was accommodating. A bit of a travel to get there from Kingston but the travel was worth it.

Reading any enchanting fiction novel about jamaica, one must pause and take a deep breath, as the seemingly unreal description of this wonderful country hits with unending beauty and clarity. This feeling is a reality at Katamah... Owned and operated by some of the most genuine incredible people a person can meet, this tiny little string of guest villas along... More
